newschannel debate in ames, iowa, ahead of the straw poll that's going to happen this weekend. steve brown is on the campus of iowa state university, bright and early this morning, you're on central time, steve. welcome and good morning. >> we are. >> good morning and go cyclones! good morning, gretchen, steve, peter, you need an actual a full inhale before you say the name of tonight's debate is the fox news washington examiner republican party of iowa republican candidates debate. and that takes a full breath but if you're going to take a look at the combatants in this particular debate, let's talk about first the arguably the candidate that has been most in the move in the polls and that would be michelle bachmann. you could argue that based on her performances in the two nationally televised debates so far, that has helped propel michelle bachmann up into the top tier of the presidential candidates for the g.o.p. now, it is interesting in that we've got to debate and then we've got an actual measurable event coming up on saturday which is the straw poll and the chairman of the state p
hopefuls made their pitches to iowa voters today at the annual iowa straw poll. steve handlesman is live with more on the big day. hi, steve. >> reporter: hi, jim. it's a beautiful cool evening here in central iowa. there was an air of ang anticipation. now they're counting the straw poll ballots. there's a delay, we're told, because of all the write-in ballots. that may be the rick perry factor. a lot of people told me today they were going to write in the name of the texas governor who just today became an official candidate, so he wasn't on the ballot. so he rained on the parade here. he tried to kind of upstage the party, that a lot of republicans focus on. this is their baby. they're really focused on the effect on the republican race that this straw pole has. it's like a fair. with lots of food, lots of people, and bands. but the stars are republican candidates, like rick santorum. and tim pawlenty. tea partier michele bachmann. libertarian ron paul, and others. mitt romney was not in the state. iowaians came to the straw poll not for the music, but they waited in long lines to cas

. >> thanks joanne. thank you for the call. we'll go on to steve in reno, nevada. independent line. go ahead, steve. steve, you on the air? we'll try one more time for steve. we'll go to darlene, dayton, ohio. democrats line, go ahead. one more time for darlene. caller: i am darlene. host: go ahead. caller: i am about a c-span viewer. what i'd like to say is i've watched a lot of what's going on c-span and i've heard no one, i mean absolutely no one talk about jobs. all they are doing is simply bashing our president. i would like to hear someone say something about what's going on. i look at the crowd in this audience, and i'm sure i can atest to the fact that the majority of the people there are as much out of work as i am. how they can sit there and bash the president when they are as much out of work as i am, i do not understand it. i don't understand. why can't they come together? why can't we do something to help the american people? myself included. host: darlene, thanks for the call. what do you take away? caller: the first caller raised a good point which is there are other candidate
'll call the straw poll. they say it's a circus, looks like fun. steve brown is there live in ames and we've got to ask you, steve. what have you sampled? it's a political carnival. the only place i can think of where you can sign a wind blade from one of the huge wind turbines, energy generating turbines. and that's here and folks that generate electricity make the turbines, want to tell folks, hey, we would like the attention of voters as well. this is the line to get into the beef sundays offered by the michele bachmann campaign. some of them have been in line 45 minutes and that's an indication of not only perhaps how good the sundae is about you how big the draw in her particular tent. by the way, is air conditioned. that's an air conditioned tent up over that way. michele bachmann is in line to be a traditional winner. at least a favorite to come out on top in terms of the vote total when all of these folks get done voting by the end of the day and the polls close at four o'clock central time and that will be five o'clock eastern. but rick santorum also has an opportunity to win and
in the united states. steve also was the coleader last year with former secretary of defense, bill perry with an assessment of the 2010th quadrennial defense review that seems like 100 years ago already in time so we time so we knew it fiscal issues the deficit debate was far different than in the aftermath of the n-november of a drug revolution when the tea party came to town and everything else happened has been subsequently what would like to do this morning is to begin by myself posing some questions to each of the panelists to frame the discussion and then of course go to you because we are fortunate enough to have television coverage today. when we go to the crowd, please identify yourself, wait for a microphone and ask a short question cannot be specific about who you are addressing it to if you would. i want to begin with alice because i think for a number of reasons that brought perspective on what this recent to accomplish is worth to understand before you get into specifics about its implications might eat maybe what they should be or should not be for the broader national sec
and steve hayes from the weekly standard. let me take you behind the scenes. we had to pretape that interview with michelle bachmann and while it was running we found out big new campaign and that is tim pawlenty former governor of minnesota and a serious contender has decided to drop out of the campaign. he pent more than 45 days in iowa and hundred campaign appearances and finished a weak third in the iowa straw poll and in lesss than 12 hours he's out. bret, are you surprised? >> no, they put their eggs in the ames straw poll basket. because of apes, there was not enough fuel in the car to keep going down the road. i saw governor pawlenty huddled with his advisors. it was not a happy moment for them. i didn't want to go up and interrupt and ask them questions, but they came to the conclusion they couldn't go back to donors and say this is a reality. after that showing and he got fewer votes than sam brown bag now kansas governor did when he dropped out four and half years ago. it was a tough day for governor pawlenty. >> chairman strawn, pawlenty, we thought he had the big b
man who carries a lot of weight with these voters isn't on my ballot, but he is on the radio. steve brown says he has a knack for heating things up. >> all right. finish the sentence for me 'cause we have heard this a million times. it's not ron paul i don't like. it's ron paul's supporters. >> supporters. >> the des moines register calls him a conservative blow torch. >> the problem pawlenty has is he didn't stand up to the high school quarterback and now he's picking on the captain of the cheerleading squad. >> now he's back on the radio air waves and that's bad news for the republican presidential field. >> what i want to do this time is traumatize pretty much all of them. >> he's part of a new iowa breed of republican activists. >> there is a new crop of evangelical conservatives who are unbending, uncompromising, and are tired of being told one thing when another thing happens and he is the mouthpiece of that movement. >> tim has seen when that mouthpiece can do. he worked for mitt romney's 08 iowa campaign and dace detests romney. >> with mitt romney, he has no record on any i
. >> i'm steve chenevey. >> i'm sarah simmons. let's say good morning to tony perkins with the latest on the weather for us. it was definitely a drencher yesterday. >> yeah, depending on where you were, it certainly was yesterday afternoon and yesterday evening. that rain has moved out. we could see more rain develop here across the region later on today so you want to be aware of that. take the umbrella with you. let's check the current airport temperatures. steve is right, a little bit cooler behind the rainfall. temperatures in the 60s this morning. 69 at reagan national. 67 at dulles. because of the rain, there is a coastal flood advisory in effect for much of the region, all the counties you see this in blue. but what you want to be aware of is that coastal flood advisory in effect until noon for the tidal potomac and for the we were shore of the chesapeake bay with the winds blowing and the possibility of some more precipitation we could see highs about a foot higher than normal. here is a look at the latest satellite-radar. nothing happeni
now for the weather. steve villanueva is in for sam this morning. hey, steve. >> hey, guys. good morning, everyone. we'll start in texas this morning, where it is finally a little bit cooler. yesterday in dallas, we were only in the 90s for the first time in 40 days. we were not in the triple digits thanks to some thunderstorms. more in the forecast. great news because you desperately needed the rain. and in new england, back towards chicago a very comfortable start to the day heading into the 80s later with lots of sunshine. all right, everyone. that is your national forecast. that's your weather, everyone. elizabeth? >> all right, steve. thanks so much. >>> now, a spoiler alert. you might actually enjoy a story more if you know how it ends before you begin. at least that's what a new study is saying. abc's david wright takes a look on this new twist on storytelling. >> reporter: these researchers insist knowing how everything turns out doesn't spoil the fun. it actually makes things better. for "good morning america" -- hang on a sec. it actually makes things better. really? th
congressman steve king, and analysis of neal king of the wall street journal. >>> good morning -- >> once again, former governor, tim pawlenty, is pulling out of the race. he will no longer be a republican candidate for president. this after placing third in the iowa poll yesterday. we want to bring in our peter hamby, a political correspondent for us. what led to this? was it third place? >> absolutely a third place finish. his staff privately in the weeks running up to the straw poll knew they needed a first or strong second place finish to prove to the donors and supporters that their campaign was not stalled, and he was myered in single digits. late last night pawlenty organized a conference call with supporters, and staff, and that call happened this morning and i am told by a source on the call, he will later today announce the end of his campaign, and he told his staff, quote, we needed a boost from aims that did not happen." that's the word this morning, and unfortunately pawlenty was not able to gain traction in iowa. he joined the race 150 days ago and michele bachmann jumped in
neighborhood better and bring america back. and abc's steve osunsami decided to see the plan n action. >> reporter: they're the type of people that could help end the foreclosure crisis. dane and his sister-in-law have bought eight foreclosed homes this year for pennies on the dollar. after $15 hourks in upgrades and a month of hard work, it was transformed. >> if the government would get involved and offer more affordable finance options, it would make things easier. >> probably take 50% to 75% of the properties off the market within a year or two. >> reporter: washington is listening closely. they're looking at tax breaks. hemming investors get better financing. making sure there are families ready to trent homes investors purchase. the biggest idea, making it eas over the mortgage for a family in the home, and have the family pay rent. it's still your home? >> j.r. and his partner were struggling. an investor bought their home and pushed the monthly bill down to $850 in rent. >> we did not have to move. we're in the same community. >> reporter: rob davidson is the inveser. >> we ha
republican party and steve hayes from the weekly standard. let me take you behind the scenes a little bit. we had to pretape the interview with michele bachmann about an hour ago and while it was running we found out some big news in this campaign and that is that tim pawlenty, the former governor of minnesota a guy who was a serious contender when the race started has decided to drop out of the campaign. he spent more than 4 45 days in iowa. more than 100 campaign appearances. finished a weak third in the iowa straw poll and within 12 hours he is out. bret, surprised? >> no, they put a lot of their eggs in the ames straw poll basket and this morning i'm told he said that because of ames there was not enough fuel in the car to keep going down the road. i saw governor pawlenty at the hotel this morning huddled with his advisors. it was a not a happy moment for them. i didn't want to go up and interrupt and ask questions. but i think they came to the conclusion that they couldn't go back to their donors and say this is a reality. after that showing, and he got fewer votes than sam brownback did
in the panel about this. steve hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with the hill. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. what about this action, charles? >> i thought the late-day rally that we saw probably started around 3:00, when the president would not address the country, cheering and thrown in the air. general international exuberance. that is an attempt at satire. trying to get a chuckle. >> bret: i figured i'd let you go. >> you have to explain yourself, it's -- >> bret: the crickets were chirping. okay. >> i guess i wasn't cut out for that. the real story is what happened around 2:00. the man who really runs america, chairman of the federal reserve said for two years, keep interest rates low. normally, the chairman will say words like indefinitely, or for a while. they'll use the obscure words. but he was extremely specific. this is a contrast from the predecessor. he spoke in language that was so opaque and obscure you think you were listening to distinct himalayandy lecht. this ilecht -- himalayan dialect. he said two years so at a
and herman cain. then the view from an influential iowa conservative, congressman steve king, and analysis with philip rucker of "the washington post" and neil king of "the wall street journal." i'm candy crowley in ames, iowa, and this is "state of the union." the big story this morning, former minnesota governor tim pawlenty drops out from his presidential bid. he told his staff on a conference call and then spoke on abc's "this week." >> it's been a great honor for mary and me and our team to convey the message of trying to get this country back on track, and i think it is off track, but bringing my record forward as a two-term governor of a blue state, doing things like getting government spending under control, doing health care reform the right way and much more. obviously that message didn't get the kind of traction or lift we needed or hoped for coming out of the ames straw poll. we needed to get some lift and continue on and have a pathway forward. that didn't happen, so i'm announcing this morning on your show that i'm going to be ending my campaign for president. but i'm very, v
the straw poll. steve brown is in ames, iowa with more on this, steve. >> yes, good morning, juliet, clayton and mike. over 16,000 folks came here, a pretty good turnout for the straw poll and there she is, michele bachmann on top of the his. how close ron paul got with far less buzz and far less participation here in iowa, directly himself. but, michele bachmann is the story, quite clearly coming out of the straw poll. she's the winner and not been in the campaign the longest and gotten it done through a lot of help here on the ground from iowans and last night after her victory, she wanted to thank her supporters. >> we love you. >> thank you, everyone. we love you, god bless you. god bless america. now it's on to all 50 states, god bless you everyone. >> now, if you're looking for a second tri story perhaps it belongs to rick santorum, a guy in the low single digit polls here in iowa and nationally and popped up to fourth, a really impressive showing given he has a little campaign money, but instead of money he invested the other valuable thing that he has, which is time. doing over 90 ca
, at the state fair, steve and our chief political correspondent, candy crowley. candy, i want to start with you and, yes, i want to start with the not so surprised visit i will call of sarah palin. she section, oh, shucks, go pay attention to the others but she was clearly trying to say, i'm still here? >> reporter: yes. as a matter of fact, a long time observer of iowa, he knows a few things about iowa politics and he said listen, i think she's going to get in. why else would you show up here? i would only say to that because right now sarah palin's job is speeches and raises money for her pact say staying visible certainly helps that. i think most of the betting is that she won't. >> i know you were watching last night. one of the big dynamics is that tim pawlenty needs to win iowa and michele bachmann needs to win iowa. i want you to listen to the debate that we'll call "minnesota spice". >> it's an undisputable fact that in congress her record of accomplishment and results is nonexistent. >> governor, when you were governor in minnesota, you i implemented cap and trade and prals pra praised
steve king attended the pawlenty rally but then has high praise for another can data. >> the press overlooked the strength of ron paul's campaign. he's been campaigning in iowa more than four years. he has a solid organization. he'll place well. that's the measure the rest of the candidates are competing dpens. >> talks about ron paul. gunk he could be a serious contender? >> ron paul has a history of doing well in straw polls and basically being dismissed nonetheless. he has a loyal, active hard-core of supporters. he hasn't succeeded in his last campaign or this one in broadening that to a wider share of the electorate. if he wins the straw poll, the ames straw poll is different from any other and people have to contend with him. if he comes in third or even worse, there is probably going to be a tendency to continue to write him off as somebody who has a very narrow but intense base of support. >> i want to get to her man c man cain. >> i don't believe i need to win the straw poll but i believe i need to finish in the top three. >> how risky is it to set the bar high? in general
